Professional services consultancy Sits Group has partnered with virtualisation vendor Parallels to offer northern businesses an alternative to VMware and Citrix.
As Parallels’ first UK Gold status partner based in the North, Sits will offer its customers the option of Parallels Virtuozzo Containers pitched as an alternative to traditional hyper-based products.
Parallels Virtuozzo Containers create virtual servers so multiple isolated workloads run simultaneously.
Phil Cambers, commercial director at Sits Group, claimed: “End users and resellers across the North will benefit from the extra choice. We provide capacity planning for customers to assess their environment before choosing a product based on requirements and budget.”
Russell Blackburn, country manager for the UK and Ireland at Parallels, said: “Interest in virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI) is increasing rapidly, but the market is still being educated on the benefits and what is available out there.
“We will be working with Sits to improve visibility of both Parallels and the benefits of VDI.”
